Stranded: Top 3 Halloween Candies

Hi everyone! I'm glad to be back after our extended long weekend. Today, I'm linking up with Shay and Erika for Stranded.

Here are links to my previous Stranded posts:

This one was tough for me- I have a huge sweet tooth! I'd be happy to eat sweets at every meal if you'd let me, but I'll reconsider that idea after PopSugar released this article about how much exercise it takes to burn off each type of candy! :(  But, if I was stranded on a deserted island and could only have 3 candies while there, I probably wouldn't be too worried about exercise! So here we go...

1. Tootsie Rolls/Tootsie Pops

Why do Tootsie Rolls always get such a bad rap? Now I don't love the fruit flavored ones, but I LOVE a chocolate Tootsie! And as for the pops- I love the blue and orange ones- so darn good!

2. Peanut Butter M&Ms

Ok, this is kind of cheating. I don't really know anyone who hands out fun-size Peanut Butter M&Ms, but it'd be a lot cooler if they did! :) I'll take your basic M&Ms, too, but give me those orange bags any time and you'll make me a happy lady! (And peanut butter is TOTALLY a source of protein, right?!)

3. Pink Starbursts

While technically, I'd really prefer a 3 Musketeers or a Kit Kat, my kids said I needed a fruity candy instead. I always steal the pink Starbursts from the kids' fun size packs, and thankfully someone at Starbust took note so they started making Favereds packs, too!

19 days 'til Halloween! Hide your bags, kids!

Thanks for joining me today- stop back by tomorrow and link-up with me when I share a really easy recipe for salted caramel brownies for my Try It Thursday! See you soon!


  1. So much yes about all of your choices!!! I only LOVE the pink starbursts and tootsie rolls.. yum!!

    1. What in the world are those Tootsie Rolls you blogged about? I've never seen those in Texas!

  2. Girl. Pink starbursts?!?!?! Why do they not sell JUST the pink ones!????

    1. Ha! I know- even buying the Favereds bag is a waste because who wants the red ones!? Yuck! The tropical bags are pretty good.


Hi friends! Let me know what you think! I'd love to hear from you!
